This craft is a fun idea for any shade of linen though. Get creative and create the perfect centerpiece for any occasion! I had a lot of fun twisting and twirling my linen to make a unique vase that I’m sure will get a lot of attention.
I used IL020 in our new blue shades. You can find these and all the rest of the new linen colors here.
- A vase. Any vase you have will work for this craft. I do recommend a smaller vase just to make things easier on yourself. I tried with at larger vase at first and quickly realized a smaller one was a much better idea!
- Linen. I cut my linen into 2"-3"wide strips. The length does not matter, although longer pieces are easier to work with. Pick whatever colors you like, too! I chose blue shades of linen because our Blue Bliss Sale is going on right now.
- Some pins to hold things in place while you work.
Having some pins handy is a good idea to help keep things in place.
I like to start by wrapping one piece around the neck of the vase (or any secure place on the vase) and then creating knot to keep it in place.
Then just started twisting the linen and wrapping it around the vase. It is easier to ties strips together in the beginning stages. Later, you can trim the excess linen and tuck the knots under if you like.
Once you have covered more of the surface with the linen, it is easier to twist the ends of strips together or tuck the ends under other pieces to secure them. I like to twist the ends to blend them into one another and make sure they stay put.
Just work with the strips to find the best method for you. They are not that hard to keep in place and you will find a way that you like best once you have wrapped a few pieces. The first couple are a bit tricky, but it’s a piece of cake after that.
When you are done wrapping the vase in linen, you can trim any stray threads coming off the linen to clean things up.
Play around with the colors to create your own unique design. The last step is add some flowers and admire your work!
